Judge R. C. Davey is Dead.
Judge Ri. C. Davey, Louisiana 's
Representative in Congress from
the Second District died at the F
Hotel Dieu in New Orleans, Sat- 4
urday morning, after a lingering p
Mr. Davey was a conspicuous F
representative of the class of
common-sense workers. He was
one of the best known men in the
halls of Congress, and his long,
practical experience rendered
him a valuable man for the Sec
ond District to have at that post.
A Louisianian by birth, he first
saw the light of day in the city of
New Orleans, Oct. 22, 1853. His
youth was passed in securing an
education obtained at the schools
of New Orleans, and subsequent
ly at St. Vincent's Collhge, Cape
Girardeau, Mo., being graduated I
therefrom in 1s 1. ]
Mr. Davey had alnost from
boyhood exhibited a keen inter
est in politics, and was a Demo
crat of sterling worth and integ
rity whose counsel was always
instrumental in guiding the par
ty to success. D)ecember 1879,
he was elected a mlember of the
State Senate and so faithfully
and well (lid he serve the inter
ests of his constituency that he
was re elected in April, 1884, and
again in April, 1892. Mr. Davey
was President piro telmpore of
the Senate during tue sessions
of 1884 and ls86.
In November, 1880, he was
elected reco(rder of the First
Recorder's Cou rt, and re elected
November, 18M2; re elected April,
1884, and served until 1888. In
April of the latter year he was
defeated for Mayor of New Or
leans. IHe was elected to the
Fifty-third Congress, positively
declined a renomination to the
Fifty-four Congress, was re
elected to the Fifty-sixth, Fifty
seventh, Fifty-eighth, Fifty-ninth
and Sixtieth Congress. He la
bored hard and faithfully in the
interest of New Orleans and the
distr ict, and always with a tell
ing effect. He was a member of
the Interstate and Foreign Com
mnerce Committee. He was a
man of strong character, honest
and sincere, and his friends
were only limited by the number
of his acquaintances.
The funeral was held in New
Orleans Monday and was attend
ed by a large number of promi
nent lpeople, including several of
the dead statesman's colleagues.
Cominmittees to attend the fu
neral services of the late Repre
sentative Davey of Louisiana
were applointed by the sergeants
at-arms of the two houses of Con

Passing the town of Garyville, a
La. situated on the Y. & M. V. c
Railroad, some miles below r
Lutcher, the traveler looking i
out from the train window would
not be likely to regard it as more (
than an average sawmill town, i
perhaps a little below the aver- I
age so far as a view of large
buildings is concerned. But the 4
writer in conversation with a 1
lady from that town, some weeks
ago, was amazed to find that it
had made steps to the higher
Christianity and the higher civic
life which leaves many another
more pretentious town far in the
rear so far as actual accomplish
ment is concerned.
In the first place, Garyville has
1 done what Dr. Washington Glad
den many years ago advocated
with such fire--and futility--as
the right course for Protestants
in smpall towns, viz, not to have
three or four separate evangeli
cal organizations, worshiping in
mere shacks and starving their
lpreachers; but to drop minor
differences of religious opinion
and observance and unite in one
f well-built church, ministered
unto by one well-paid, competent
This Garyville has practically
' done. After other denominations
had tried for a separate corpo
rate existence without success,
by common consent the Protest
af ant Christians of the town united
- with the Presbyterian church.
- Their undivided support goes to
it; the building is receiving all
;- necessary comforts and improve
- ments, and a minister, far supe
rior in education and talent to
what the usual small town, or
even large town, can acquire, is
All this material visible good,
- in addition to the spirit of unity
and harmony which haying one
church only supplies. This may
not be possible everywhere, but
it is ideal.
Again, Garyville has a reading
club which supports a reading
room where all the magazines can
be found, where ladies are ad
mitted and yet where the men
can go in their shirt sleeves af
ter the work of the day is done.
There are billiards, chess and
checker tables, and if we mis
take not, a gymnasium. The
minister aforementioned has
charge of the reading-room at a
fair salary. The dues are 50cts
monthly, and Mr. Bloss, the
manager of the sawmill interests
of the town, has promised the
club a ten thousand dollar build
ing so soon as the membership
reaches two hundred, which it
Sill do very shortly.
Now can Garyville be consider
ed ordinary, after thus accom
1 plishing two such desirable ob
r jects in civic life: church unity
r and the spending of spare time
i profitably as well as pleasantly?
e Many towns with their shabby
I churches and poorly paid minis
t ters, their dull-as-ditch-water
slowness, with only the saloon
V and illicit places of questionable
s pleasure for workingmen, might
- well envy Garyville-and profit
;, by her example.
t- We have no doubt that Gary
d ville has other problems to meet
1. and solve, but if she but handles
0 them with the success of those
11 mentioned she will soon by nat
- ural evolution become a model
- town. What has already been
o done commands our admiration,
r and the first time we can slip off
is from business, we shall drop
down there and consult the
i, townspeople about their book
; club at least.
